Research on vegetables as a whole to determine their potential health benefits has been ongoing. Overall, it has been well established that the intake of vegetables are beneficial to health and there is convincing evidence that they contribute to the prevention of CHD, HTN, stroke and certain types of cancer. In addition to a review of health benefits, this session also explores interesting facts and historical information about vegetables, as well as ways to store and prepare them. As a nation, we are not doing too well when it comes to meeting vegetable recommendations. Discover and share new, creative ways to encourage an increase in vegetable intake.
